I am passionate about nurturing our postcard state

Clean air

My physician husband and I have worked globally together for 42 years on four continents in invited opportunities to develop health care programs. Today, we enjoy hiking and cross-country skiing in this geographic wonder of Colorado, which we treasure as our home. I am passionate about nurturing our postcard state for our children and granddaughters. I am especially committed to addressing contamination of air and water, which disproportionately affects those who are impoverished—both locally and globally. We continue our financial support of Environment Colorado and Environment Colorado Research & Policy Center because of two key categories of their work. One is their research and policy branch, ever increasing its robust development and published articles. The other is their intelligent, informed, committed advocacy at the Colorado Legislature.
